I am also more motivated to eat well and exercise as it makes tummy result even better

5 50 Tummy Tuck

I had my tummy tuck with Lisa 3 months ago, and am over the moon with my results.

I'm 37 and have 2 boys (4 and 7 ). My tummy muscles separated after my first pregnancy, leaving me with two bulges on my tummy no matter how much i exercised. I was still only size 8-10, but seeing my tummy was upsetting me every single day. Finally, when our youngest was 4, and my husband and I decided that our family was complete, I decided to do something about it.

I found Lisa thanks to all the wonderful reviews on this and other websites. She was not the nearest surgeon to me (she is in Bristol and I am in Hertfordshire, so it's 2.5hrs by car or trains each way!). But because most consultations were online, I found this very manageable; and only had to travel to Bristol 3 times (one for pre-op consultation; one for surgery and one for 2 weeks post-op check-up). Lisa was on hand via Whatsapp all times day and night; so I did not at all feel unsafe not living in Bristol. We also had regular Zoom follow-ups, in which I could raise any concerns (if I had any).

I was terribly anxious before the op, but it all went very well, and I could feel my corset-like repaired abs on the evening of the surgery. My recovery went smoothly; I was working from home 2 weeks after surgery; and now 3 months on I am back to doing karate, yoga as well as HIIT and weights. Aesthetically, my tummy looks even better than I expected. Bulges on the stomach and wrinkly skin have gone. I now have a definitive hourglass shape, something that I didn't expect. My tummy is super flat - it no longer sags to the floor when I do a plank and no longer hangs over the top of my trousers, skirts, etc. This has given me enormous confidence - I can wear cropped tops (which I didn't do even when I was a teenager!); I no longer turn off the light when I am intimate with my husband; I am also more motivated to eat well and exercise as it makes tummy result even better.

To summarise I am super pleased with my results. Lisa is a fantastic surgeon - I followed her instructions to the letter, and she created a result that far exceeded my expectations. She is also a wonderful and caring person; once you meet her you make a friend for life.

She was professional and approachable giving me much needed confidence

5 50 Breast Reduction

Vertical Breast Reduction Oct 2020 (36GG to 34DD) Age 56 - The only regret I have is that I didn't find Lisa and do this decades ago!

A bit about me: From my teenage years my breasts had been the bane of my life. They were large and pendulous. No matter how much weight I lost or how much exercise I tried to do nothing changed. My shoulders had dents where my bra straps were holding the weight of my breasts. My breasts hurt when I exercised and even a brisk walk could cause discomfort. My posture was not great either. I found shopping for clothes a nightmare as my frame was often a size 12/14 but because of the size of my breasts I would need to buy a 16/18 in a top or a dress which made me look much larger than I was. Basically, I felt that all people saw was my breasts. For many years I wanted to have a breast reduction procedure, but the timing was never right and/or I did not have the finance readily available. I am an anxious person, so it needed to be right for me to go ahead. I made myself a promise that I would do the necessary research and go ahead with this as soon as I retired.

Surgery: I decided to retire early and late 2019 I fixed the date for April 2020. As soon as that decision was made, I started my research. Once I came across Lisa’s profile and read all the information and reviews pertaining to her, I knew that I wanted Lisa to carry out my operation using the vertical scar technique. Pre surgery I lost approximately 1½ stone - none of it from my breasts!

Little did I know that I had decided to undergo this procedure in the middle of a global pandemic! However, Lisa and her manager, Liana are such kind and caring ladies who made me feel supported throughout. I met Lisa via two Zoom consultations and once in person before my surgery. She was professional and approachable giving me much needed confidence. My regular follow-ups have been carried out over Zoom due to the pandemic which is very convenient for me as Bristol is over an hour from where I live. Lisa listened, understood my anxieties and discussed my expectations with me. She has an eye for proportions which gives her the ability to bring about amazing results that I could never have imagined. Lisa is only ever a message or call away and I know she will always be there if I have any questions or issues.

A bit about me now: I look in the mirror and can see my torso and rib cage – AMAZING!!! I am 3 months post-op and I feel fabulous. No pain when I exercise, my weight loss that no one seemed to see before the operation is now noticed by everyone I meet. I stand taller and have no discomfort from my bra. Following surgery, I’ve lost almost ½ stone and I’m an off the peg size 12. My confidence has been boosted ten-fold and exercising is painless. This surgery was 100% worth the expense and the small amount of discomfort that came with it. Lisa and her team at the Nuffield are second to none and I would thoroughly recommend Lisa to anyone who is looking to have this surgery.

I felt very comfortable and trusted her completely

5 50 Breast Reduction

I had my breast reduction at age 21 and haven’t looked back since! I went from a 34G to a 34D and having suffered from back and shoulder pain, difficulty exercising and body insecurities.

My posture improved almost immediately, and once I recovered I found I could run again with no pain and shopping for new clothes is so much more enjoyable! I’ve always been quite active through rowing, but I’m now the fittest I’ve ever been and even signed up for a half marathon, which never would have been possible before!

Lisa was absolutely incredible throughout the experience from the first consultation to the regular follow-up appointments. She does everything possible to get the best result for you, I felt very comfortable and trusted her completely!

I finally look and feel much happier and more youthful which is how everybody should feel

5 50 Breast Reduction • Paid: £7300

I recently underwent a breast reduction using the vertical scar method which Lisa is so well known for and I can safely say it is the best decision I have ever made. I have wanted this done since I was a teenager, however, I was always concerned about finding the right surgeon. I was lucky enough to have a friend recommend me and I’m grateful I can now do the same for others!

This really is a life-changing surgery, not just for the alleviated neck and back pain, but how much my confidence has grown makes it worth the price entirely. I used to come out of the shower or get dressed trying to hide away from my partner and even myself.. always feeling self-conscious and upset with my body, but it is safe to say that ship has sailed! I finally look and feel much happier and more youthful which is how everybody should feel, and Lisa made this all possible.

From the minute I contacted Lisa I knew I wanted to go ahead with her as my surgeon (and luckily the hospital was located in my home City which made the process even better!). Both Lisa and her manager Liana kept in frequent contact with me making sure I was completely prepared and Liana did everything she could to get me dated as soon as possible which just proves how much they value the patients they have. I also decided to undergo this procedure in the midst of a global pandemic, but throughout the whole process, I felt safe and supported both emotionally and physically. My regular follow-ups have been carried out over Zoom which is actually more convenient for me due to work and Lisa is always just on the other end of the phone if I have a question (which I have had many). I’d recommend this 1000x over to anybody considering it.

I went from a droopy E cup to a youthful, perky C cup and haven’t looked back since.

Not only are the results better than I could ever have hoped

5 50 Breast Implants, Tummy Tuck

I am a fit 46-year-old and have had 3 caesarean sections. Having spent the best part of 10 years dieting and exercising to try to deal with the damage the c-sections had left me, in the hope I could improve my physical (without clothes) appearance myself. I began to realise I couldn’t. Following a recommendation, I went to see Lisa which has turned out one of the most positive life-changing experiences and the best decision I have ever made. My only regret was not doing this 10 years ago.

I had a breast augmentation (mentor micro-textured cohesive silicone gel) and tummy tuck at the same time, which also resulted in a repair of a ventral hernia and umbilical hernia. I hadn’t realised until after the surgery that my posture, digestive system, bowels, abdominal discomfort, distended stomach etc were so poor pre-surgery. Not only have all these things been corrected, but I also look and feel far better than I have ever done in my life. My body image and confidence has improved dramatically. I was a 34B and size 10 (and yes, you can still have significant excess skin and all these problems at this size whilst being physically fit too).

Lisa saw me regularly for several pre-op appointments to talk me through what the surgery would entail and to be sure that I was sure and understood what could be achieved and also what couldn’t. She made me feel that if I wanted to change my mind or if it wasn’t for me then I could walk away at any point. She didn’t rush me and let me make my decisions in my own time but with lots of support, guidance and factual information throughout.

The results are incredible. I am now size 8 wearing 32DD. My goal was to look normal and proportionate. Not only are the results better than I could ever have hoped, aesthetically Lisa ensures your new belly button and scarring are also perfect which includes strict post-operative care. Her attention to detail pre, during and post-surgery is exceptional. Lisa sets out to give a Rolls Royce service and she does this and more. She sees you many times before you leave the hospital, stays in touch by text and also sees you post-surgery for regular follow up appointments. In addition to this, you also have access to her PA Liana who is brilliant at absolutely everything, getting your 100’s of questions answered quickly! I trusted Lisa implicitly and her standard of care, bedside manner and gentle approach was perfect for me.

The only warning I would give is don’t go into this lightly. It is not a walk in the park and you don’t get the results I have got by popping in for a quick op and not listening to the advice. It is major surgery and for the results to be as perfect as mine you need to follow all the advice for post-surgery recovery. It is painful, even if you think you have a high pain threshold (I have), you may think you will be back in work in a week (I did think) but you won’t, you will need about 3 weeks before you can even begin to feel human. Go into to it with your eyes open, ask all the questions, accept it will take about 6 weeks out of your life before you start to feel normal, rest as you are told, don’t push it - then you will have the most magnificent result.

It has completely changed my life for the better

5 50 Septoplasty, Septoplasty

In 2017 I had an open septorhinoplasty with the wonderful Lisa! Not to sound dramatic but it has completely changed my life for the better. Before surgery, I would avoid social situations, even something as simple as driving I would avoid as I hated stopping at traffic lights in fear the next driver would see my nose from the side.

I was 28 when I had the surgery and even though I wished I had it sooner I think in reality it was the perfect time as I was able to cope better with my emotions - was a bit of a rollercoaster! I had a difficult and long surgery and a more difficult recovery than I had anticipated- it was a very emotional time! Also getting used to seeing my face without that thing that I was so fixated on was a process. But over the months of recovery and swelling reducing my confidence grew and grew.

I am two years post op and it was honestly the best thing I have ever done and I’m so glad I choose Lisa as my surgeon she has been there for me through all of my worries and really has created the nose I should have always had! The best thing about Lisa is she sees the person as an individual and not just a patient, I went to quite a few consultations with other surgeons and when I met Lisa I knew instantly I could trust her. It’s lovely not to have that constant worry and anxiety about something which has enabled me to focus on other things - It has opened up so many opportunities for me and my new confidence - with my first book coming out this month!

So a big thank you to Lisa you are the best.

I feel much more confident in social situations on holidays and most of all with my partner

5 50 Breast Implants • Paid: £5504

My friend has recommended me Lisa Sacks but I did my own research and went ahead with the consultation. Both Liana and Lisa were so approachable and helpful when responding to my questions and made me feel at ease from the get-go. When meeting Lisa she was so warm and welcoming and so gentle towards me, I immediately knew I wanted her to complete my surgery. Lisa gave me all the required information pros and cons so I could make an informed decision myself. Together - we decided on 300cc. I was a 32B/C and my end goal was to be a 32E.

The day of the surgery obviously very nervous but Lisa instantly put me at ease as did the staff at Nuffield Health. Following the surgery, I had a lovely gift and card from Lisa wishing me well, which was such a lovely gesture! Lisa herself came to visit me the next day to check on me and remove the drains herself which I really liked as put my trust in her solely. The aftercare was absolutely amazing! I couldn’t be more thankful to Lisa for giving me her personal number for a week and asking me every couple of days how I was, it reassured me and my mum completely.

3 months now on have 3 checks up at 1 week 3 weeks and 12 weeks! I am healing well, the scars are so minimal I can hardly see them! Absolutely over the moon with my new breast and I feel amazing within myself! The difference it has made to my confidence is beyond believable! I feel much more confident in social situations on holidays and most of all with my partner! I am now wearing a 32E bra!

At 50 I feel younger, more vital and more confident

5 50 Breast Reduction • Paid: £7200

After having children in my 40s I lost confidence in my body. My breasts were large and pendulous. I researched breast reduction surgery although nervous about surgical procedures. I spoke to ladies after their reductions and was amazed by their excitement, joy and a renewed sense of self-confidence post op. One year on from my surgery and I can’t express how life-changing this has been. At 50 I feel younger, more vital and more confident. I have regained an interest in feeling good about my body. I love my body again. I was a 32G and now 32D/DD. I can enjoy underwear again and I just feel so much better in my own skin!

I would recommend breast reduction to anyone who has also experienced that loss of connection with themselves. It’s a magical transformation in many ways!

I chose Lisa Sacks for breast reduction surgery for three reasons: Great reviews. She’s a lady so she understands womanhood. She’s also a sculptor who has a deep aesthetic appreciation of the female form. My experience was outstanding. Lisa was warm, insightful, deeply caring, intuitive and highly competent. Her level of care throughout the procedure and post-op has been second to none.

She is, without a doubt, the safest pair of hands to take anyone through this procedure. Furthermore, her team offer the highest level of care and attention throughout.

It has now been three months since the surgery and I couldn’t be happier with the results.

5 50 Breast Lift, Breast Implants

Uplift and implants to improve breasts left empty and sagging after pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Everything from start to finish with Lisa was fantastic. I felt very informed and very well looked after throughout the whole process, and was encouraged to take plenty of time to think before making a decision.

After having my first child, I noticed my breasts had decreased quite significantly in size (from DD to a C). Initially, this didn’t bother me too much with a good bra, but after my second child, my breasts decreased another cup size and felt very flat and has loose skin. This time no bras seemed to fit properly. I would squirm when my husband touched my chest. I had to wear a bra with a sports top to give me any kind of support and shape under clothing.

It has now been three months since the surgery and I couldn’t be happier with the results. I now have pert, full breasts that are in perfect proportion to my body and I no longer need to agonise over bras fitting.

I feel younger, sexier, lighter and most of all, happy with the way I look

5 50 Tummy Tuck

I am 42, 5ft2 and have had 6 children. My youngest child was 5 at the time of my surgery.

I have had 4 natural births and 2 Caesarean sections. I had all 6 children in 9 years. My tummy had large muscle separation and with my caesarean scar too, I disliked the way I looked.

As my family was complete, I looked into having a tummy tuck.

I went to see four different surgeons between Bath and London but, found Lisa Sacks in Bristol my preferred choice (even though the location is not near to my home). She has a warmth, understanding and her professionalism is second to none.

With regards to the procedure, the duty of care shown to me by all of the staff at Nuffield Hospital was exemplary. Lisa and her team provided me with exceptional aftercare, even to the point where I still visit on an annual basis three years on from the surgery.

I am delighted with the result. I feel younger, sexier, lighter and most of all, happy with the way I look.

My clothes fit better, I look so much younger and slimmer

5 50 Breast Implants • Paid: £8950

I am a 35-year-old woman and I first met Lisa Sacks when I was 33 and looking for a surgeon to replace my breast implants with something much smaller and more fitting for my frame. I knew this would involve a breast lift as I would be significantly decreasing the size. I had my breast augmentation when I was 25 and I hadn’t taken the time to properly research my surgeon and just went with a popular high street company that offered a good discount. I ended up with implants that were ridiculously large for my small frame (going from a B cup to an FF).

Lisa appealed in that she specialises in natural looking breasts and had many good reviews. From the moment I met her, she was everything you want in a surgeon. She spent a lot of time, just getting to know me and my circumstances. She taped my breast up to show the kind of effect I could get with a lift which was really interesting to see. She didn’t think I even needed to have another implant put in and recommended an implant explant and lift which I hadn’t even considered. Most surgeons actively discourage removing implants altogether.

At first, I was unsure as I thought I might end up with my old breasts back and looking worse after having had two surgeries. She totally put my mind at ease and we had as many consultations as I wanted to make sure I was happy. She explained to me that as the reason I wanted implants in the first place was for the shape more than the size, she could have achieved the look I wanted just by doing a lift. I had thought lifts were just for saggy boobs and hadn’t realised that they can be used to shape boobs as well as reducing the size of the areola.

The surgery itself was so different from Lisa. The Nuffield in Bristol was lovely and Lisa was there from the start and so reassuring. She said to me this experience will be so different from the first time and she was right! Everything went beautifully and Lisa was there to personally remove the tubes after surgery as she likes to do everything herself.

Every day I am glad that I followed her advice and had the implants removed. It's so nice knowing that my breasts are all mine and have no implants in there. The shape is lovely, is getting better and better as it settles. The scars are nearly invisible despite being the lollipop formation (around the areola and down to the crease). My clothes fit better, I look so much younger and slimmer!

I’ve had to follow up consultations at 1 week, I month, 3 months, 6 months, 1 year, 1.5 years and will continue to have them yearly for 10 years. it's so reassuring knowing she is always there making sure everything heals well.

If anyone is unhappy with their implants I would really recommend seeing Lisa as it's the best decision I ever made. Or if anyone is considering having implants I would still recommend her as she will only put them in in an appropriate size that fits your frame, they will look so natural and beautiful as she is a true artist!

Everything was excellent at this clinic. I would highly recommend.

My new breast looks so natural, proportional to my body and my confidence has improved

5 50 Breast Implants • Paid: £5504

I had a breast augmentation surgery done by Lisa in July 2018. It was a great experience and everything was just perfect.

I had two consultations before the surgery where Lisa explained in details the process of operation and post-op recovery, what to expect etc. She made me feel very safe and fully prepared for the change.

The result has exceeded my expectations. My new breast looks so natural, proportional to my body and my confidence has improved a lot. I would highly recommend Lisa to anyone considering surgery, she is so kind, caring and professional!

I feel and look 100% better

5 50 Breast Lift

I had breast lift surgery, to restore my breasts to how they used to look, but they actually look better now!

I would highly recommend this surgery to anyone considering it, I feel and look 100% better. I cannot commend Lisa and her team for the professional and also very caring and personal service I received. It was very good value for money.

I needed a revision surgery after I was all healed which I wasn't sure whether to have (Lisa does this for no charge, just a hospital fee) but I would not hesitate in saying to anyone that needs this, get it done as my results were fantastic before and now even better.

Professional, personal, fantastic service and all round I'm very happy with the results.
